AND if a company does buy your image, imagine all the free press you'd get for being "that guy".
I don't think you understand how it works. You'll never know a company did anything with your image, and you'll certainly not get any credit for it...unless you slap a big watermark on it which would preclude any company from buying it in the first place.
Perhaps you've never heard the phrase "there's an exception to every rule."
Read the ToS, then maybe come back and correct yourself.
Again, free marketing > 0.000000000000001% chance that an image gets sold
Free relevant marketing comes from good SEO, word of mouth and referrals. Free irrelevant, completely unproductive marketing comes when you push your images on a platform dominated by self portraits of 16 yr old girls and billions of cat and dog pictures.
But hey, waste your time if you want. The only pro photogs that get any exposure on Instacrap are the ones who are already famous.
Look, clearly you don't use/care about Instagram.
It's a good marketing platform for me and I get tons of enjoyment from a FREE app.
